Serial killer Charles Manson, has been denied parole by a Los Angeles court. His next appeal won't be until 2007. Since his last parole bid 4 years ago, he has been disciplined for 15 different offences, including possession of a weapon.
He is now being held in solitary confinement, and didn't show at his own parole appeal, because he refused to be shackled. He was convicted of mass murder in connection to the brutal death of actress Sharon Tate and 6 others in 1969.
Manson has been described as a "horrible prisoner" and has a history of lashing out and spitting at prison guards. "He's really not much different than he was in 1969 or 1970." Says District Attorney, Stephen Kay.
